World Premiere of the one-woman show, ‘Schmaltzy & Princie: Diary of a Not-So-Great Daddy’s Girl’.
MaryLee’s dad, ‘Schmaltzy’ has been her best friend her entire life, always there for her. Her mother, not so much.
Despite lifelong aspirations of a career as an actor and writer, MaryLee has never been able to wholeheartedly commit to, or finish, well… anything. Even with her daddy’s support. And the cacophony of voices in her head, the loudest of them being her ‘Feary Godmother’, don’t help. Or do they?
Now in her fifties, and with a Sundance screenwriting competition deadline looming that could be a life-changer, she clings to Anaïs Nin’s words, “And the day came when the risk to remain tight in a bud was more painful than the risk it took to blossom."
With less than three days to “blossom”, for however much a post-menopausal woman can, MaryLee needs to overcome her fears, stop dreaming and start doing—and it all begins with this script. But before she can succeed, a few people in her life are going to have to go.
